Isaiah chapter 13

Verses 1-6

The Prophet Isaiah begins to tell the people the sad news that there will be a day whe a signal will come from the mountains.

And God will send his consecrated ones and his great warriors to battle to execute His anger. They well come from the end of Heaven to destroy the whole land.

The mighty wrath of God. One thing we learn from the Bible is that it’s not when one person is doing wrong, it’s when a people is doing wrong collectively.

When we learned in Genius that God created Adam to be fruitful and multiply the multiplication would be Accountability partners.

Jesus confirms it when He said one of the important commands is to Love your neighbor as God loves you.

If a people is doing wrong (Sodom) and then He WILL cast judgement upon them.

Uses his oracle Isaiah to warn yhe people. Who says God won’t give his people a chance to correct their actions?

Verse 6-16

Isaiah warns the people that the day will come when they will wail. This is when God WILL exterminate the sinners.

When the stars will not shine and the sun will be dark, the moon will give no light.

God says He will put an end to arrogance, and men will be rare as fine Gold. God says he will make the heavens tremble, and shake the earth from it’s place.

The word arrogance stud out in tgis reading for me. ( it could because I was listening to the song give God the Glory)

We live in the day where we rarely hear the words Thank you Jesus! Glory to God! For his Glory!

Arrogance is strong in this day as believers we are on this earth to shine God’s light, to teach and share testimony about the power of God’s grace and mercy. Introduce prayer life, walk like Jesus did.

Verse 17-22

These verses tell us that God used the Medes because they jad No care for silver or Gold, they couldn’t be bought.

And the went forth to destroy in tue name of God.

Isaiah told the people that the Lord says it would be like Sodom and Gamorrah.

Gods wrath is as strong as his love. We have to decide what end to be on, and what end we would be willing to help are neighbor be on.

This walk is about our faith in God, the confirmation of His word, and teaching what we have learned.

Be Blessed

Let’s get into the word of the Lord

Matthew Chapter 17

Verse 1-13

Jesus is transfigured on the mountain

The word says; after 6 days Jesus took Peter, James, and John the brother James Jesus led them up a high mountain by themselves.

The word says Jesus transfigured( transform into something more beautiful or elevated) himself his face Shone like the sun, his clothes became as white as the light. The word says just then Moses and Elijah appeared in front of them the word says Moses and Elijah was talking to Jesus.

Peter said to the Lord that it was good for them to be there and he offered to put up three tents one for Jesus one for Moses one for Elijah.

The word says while Peter was still speaking a bright clouds surrounded them a voice from the cloud said, this is my son, and I love him. I am pleased with him, listen to him.

The word says; the disciples heard this and they were terrified, they fell with their faces to the ground.

The word says Jesus came and touched them and said;

get up, Don’t Be Afraid

when they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.

Jesus and his disciples came down from the mountain. On the way down Jesus told them

Don’t tell anyone what you have seen, wait until the son of man has raised from the dead

The disciples asked Jesus “why did the teachers of the law say that Elijah has come first?”

The word says Jesus replied;

To be sure Elijah comes and will restore all things but I tell you Liza has already come and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished in the same way the son of man is going to suffer at their hands.

The disciples understood that he was talking about John the Baptist.

Praise God, could you imagine going up the mountain, and the cloud coming down on us? or standing there and watching Jesus Transfiguration?

As we are walking by faith, and walking toward righteousness, we should be seeing ourselves transfigured before our own eyes.

The presence of Moses and Elijah with Jesus allowed the disciples to understand that Jesus was here to fulfill the prophecy of God’s law in the words of God’s prophets.

Verse 14-21

Jesus heals demon possessed boy

The word says; that when Jesus and his disciples came to a crowd, a man approached Jesus, and knelt in front of him and said “Lord have mercy, on my son.” The man continues by telling Jesus, his son has seizures and because of his shakes he falls in the fire or into the water the man tells Jesus he brought his son to the disciples but they could not heal him.

Jesus replied;

You unbelieving and evil people! how long do I have to stay with you? how long do I have to put up with you? bring the boy here to me.

The word says; Jesus ordered the demon to leave the boy and it came out of him, he was healed at that very moment.

The word says the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked him why they could not drive out the demon?

Jesus replied to them

Because your faith is much too small. What  I.m about to tell you is true. If you have the faith as small as a mustard seed, it is enough.

You can say to this mountain ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move nothing will be impossible for you.

The word says; they got together in Galilee there Jesus said to them

The son of man is going to be handed over to men. They will kill him, on the third day he will rise from the dead.

Then the disciples were filled with deep sadness.

Remember that even in Jesus ‘s home town he didn’t do many miracles, the scripture says because their faith wasn’t much.

Miracles, signs , and wonders appear when we have even a mustard seed of faith. If you don’t believe that God can fix it because you can’t see the way then don’t expect to see a miracle.

The Lord tells the disciples that he will be handed over and killed, and rise three days later.

Verse 24 -27

Jesus pays the temple Tax

The word says; Jesus and his disciples arrived in Capernaum. The tax collector came to Peter and asked him if Jesus paid the Temple Tax. Peter replied “Yes he does”

When Peter went into the house Jesus asked him,

What do you think Simon? Who do the kings of the earth collect taxes and fees from? Do they collect from their own sons or from others?

Peter answered “from others.”

Jesus replied:

Then the sons don’t have to pay, but we don’t want to make them angry. So go to the lake and throw out your fishing line. Take the first fish you catch open it’s mouth and there you will find  the exact coin you need. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.

Isn’t it something that the Lord knew what was going on outside this reminds me that the Lord confirms the word of his prophets and servants. Peter was willing to lie to avoid any trouble. Not noticing that his lie would’ve given them more troubles than needed.

Just as soon as Peter walked into the house Jesus addressed it. and provided a way for the words from Peter may be confirmed. this was another reminder of the tongue speaking life and death.

Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer.

Matthew Chapter 13

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are doing well in your lessons. It’s been a while, it seems like too much space in between blogs.

It’s something, this blog was the first thing that the Lord had given me. Even though I always come back and write, I still felt empty.

When we go through those moments it’s important to plug back into God. I stopped all the other things that I was pressing for and the Lord showed me that those were my things that he allowed me to have. It had nothing to do with my stewardship.

When I get to the throne, I don’t want to be finding excuses why I was too busy to do the things that He placed me over.

I sat down and as I studied and wrote, that empty feeling began to fill up. I had let my cup empty of Gods oil. But the blessing is we can always go back to the well.

To my followers thanks for joining in I appreciate each and everyone of you.

If you were scrolling and happen to have come across this blog welcome. Here is where we come together in bible study, feel free to comment, like, and share so we can pass on the word of the Lord.

Let me introduce myself, my

I also serve as the Founder of Journey in Praise Ministries which is a resource to help you stay plugged into God while building your foundation on Faith. (For more info see About Me section)

Let’s get into the word!!!

Matthew Chapter 13

Jesus tells the parable of four soils

Verse 1- 9

The scripture tells us that Jesus sat by the lake, and crowds had gathered around him. Jesus got into a boat while everyone stood on the shore and he told them parables.

A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering, some fell in the path and the birds came and ate them up.

Some fell in Rocky places where there wasn’t much soil. It sprung up quickly because the soil was shallow, but when the plants came up they scorched because they had no root.

Some seeds fell among thorns which when the plant grew up the thorns choked the plants.

Other seeds fell on good soil, where it produced a crop a hundred, sixty, or thirty times what was sown. He who has ears let him hear.

As I was reading this verse I thought about some things that God has been dealing with me when it comes to tithing.

I most say I hadn’t been consistent. I also worried about where the money went.

The Lord started to lead me to sow seeds in to different ministries and families.

The Lord showed my spirit that it wasn’t for me to be concerned about where it was going.

This process was about faith, and obedience. My faith was in the seeds going to good soil, that it would be a blessing to someone. My obedience because my spirit was led to release the seeds holding it would’ve made the money over God.

Verse 10-15

Jesus Explains the Parable of the four soils

The word says the disciples went to Jesus and asked him why he speaks in parables

Jesus answered; the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them.

Whoever has will be given more, and he will have abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. This is why I speak to them in parables.

“Through seeing, they do not see; through hearing they do not hear or understand.”

In them is fullfilled the prophesy of Isaiah.

“You will be ever hearing, but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but perceiving. ”

For these people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with ears, and they have closed their eyes.

Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears and understand with their hearts. In turn, I will hear them.

The Lord tells his disciples that the people are what Isaiah’s prophesied they would be. They have become hard, their not hearing or seeing, they have to be willing to understand and believe with their heart and Jesus will hear them.

In this day we are seeing Isaiah and Jesus’s prophesy come to pass. We must pray for the people to be able to hear God and see what his power does in us.

Verse 15-23

Jesus says blessed are your eyes an ears because they hear and see. Many prophets and righteous men long to see what you see and hear what you hear, but didn’t hear it or see it.

Jesus tells his disciples the meaning behind the sower

Jesus says;

When someone hears the words of the kingdom and doesn’t grasp it or understand it. The evil one comes and snatches what was sown in their heart. This is the one who’s seed was beside the road.

The one who’s seed was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and welcomes it right away. Yet he has no root in himself, so when pressure or persecution comes because of God’s word, immediately they stumble and fall away.

The one who’s seed is sown among thornes, this is the one who hears the word but worry and distractions of the world and deceitfulness of riches choke the word and it yields no fruit.

The one who’s seeds where sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands and grasps it. He indeed bares fruit and yeilds some a hundred times, some sixty and some thirty.

This word is spot on, Now when we speak about a sowing seeds, we speak financies.

Lets talk about where you are at when you sow the seed.

Are you listening to the word. If your not taking in the word and taking the time to understand it as soon as the evil wants to shake you, your going to fall.

Are you recieving the word but can’t seem to practice faith? The stress and pressure comes in and you forget everything that God said about your circumstances the Lord says you have no root there will be no growth no replanting.

Are you the one we all want to be? The one who receives the word, walks in the word. Good soil. Are you ready to yeild fruit 100×;60×;30×.

Verse 24-30

Weeds among wheat

The word says Jesus gave another parable saying;

The kingdom of heaven is like a man sowing good seeds in his field.

The enemy came at night and sowed weeds. The plants sprouted and formed grains.

The servants went to the owner and asked him if he sowed good seeds?

How does it have weed? The enemy must have come and put it there.

The servants asked the owner if he wanted them to pull the weeds?

He responded no because you might up root the wheat with it. Let them grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reaper to gather the weeds first and tie and burn them, but gather the wheat and put them in the barn.

As I was reading this verse I thought about all the times that we let things that are not of God stop us from our growth, moving in purpose. All because we are so distracted by what they are doing we forget to learn what not to do. What happens when we keep moving and growing and let the Lord remove them when he is ready.

This parable shows us that the Lord allows us the wheat (believers) to grow with the weeds ( non believers) and once we get to our growth he goes ahead and romoves the weeds and distroys it while the wheat goes to the barn (kingdom of heaven).

We must look at our growth process in this way. You are good seeds moving in the word of the Lord but their are people around you who are doing things that are against the laws of God. If pulled to soon you may miss God show up in there lives, this can be because they watched you.

Not every hardship comes from the enemy, some will come from the kingdom of heaven as an important lesson to your growth.

Verse 31&32

The Mustard seed, he gave them another parable.

The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field.

Of all the seeds it is the smallest, but when it grows it’s the largest of the garden herbs and becomes a tree so that the birds of the air finds shelter in it’s branches.

To be a mustard seed; when god starts to plant his word in our hearts we develop faith. Our faith allows us to believe that the word of the Lord will come to pass concerning our life.

We begin by practicing faith in the word of the Lord by building our knowledge of scripture we begin to grow, we become the biggest of the garden herbs, remember we’re good soil so we become trees.

Verse 33-35

Jesus told them another parable

The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that women took and worked into three measures of flour until all was leaven.

The word says all things that Jesus said to the crowds were parables so that the prophets words were fullfilled.

I open my mouth in parables. I will utter things that have been hidden since the foundation of the word.

Do you believe that Jesus has the answer to your questions. It says it in verse 35. He will utter things hidden since the foundation of the world. Are you willing to take the time and listen?

Verse 36-43

The word says then he left the crowds and went into the house. His disciples came to him saying explain the parable of the weeds in the field.

The one who sows the good seed is son of man and the field is the world and the good seeds are sons of the kingdom and the weeds are sons of the evil one.

The enemy who sowed them is the devil and the harvest is the end of age, and the reapers are the angels.

Just as the weeds are gathered up and burned in the fire; so will be at the end of age

Son of man will send out his angels and they will gather all things that offend and all who practice evil and will throw them into the feiry fire.

Verse 44

The parable of hidden Treasures

The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it he hid it again and then sold all of his belongings and bought the field.

When we find God’s Glory we will be ready to give up everything just to be in his presence.

I’m sure you all have amazing testimonies to your first time in the glory of God. We begin to go after that feeling and nothing becomes more important.

I remember when I first started writing this blog and I would be there all day working on it in God’s Glory. I was so greedy for the word of God.

The presence of God was so strong. I always say when it comes to the blog the holy spirit is my ghost writer.

Life can come in and wraping you in it we started doing less of the things that place us in his presence and that’s when the treasure becomes hidden again and we have to go back and find it again. Our whoa ‘s of life.

Verse 45&46

The parable of the pearl merchant.

A merchant looking for fine pearls, when he found one of great value, he went and sild everything he owned and bought it.

Again like Abraham are you willing to give up what you love for God.

The Lord told Abraham to sacrifice his only son, Abraham was willing.

Are you willing to give up everything?

Verse 47-52

The kingdom of heaven is like a net that was let down and caught all kinds of fish.

When it was dull they brought the fish on shore and put the good fish in the baseket and threw away the bad fish

The word says this is how it will be at the end of age. The angels will come and seperate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into a fiery furnace where there will be weaping and gnashing of teeth.

Jesus asked if they understood all he was saying?

They replied yes

Jesus stated every teacher of the law who has been instructed about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old treasures.

In the kingdom of heaven your not there if you are not serving God and living by his laws, you are not allowed in the kingdom.

Verse 53 – 58

Jesus encounters differing reactions to his ministry

The word says when Jesus finished the parables he moved on and went to his home town. He began teaching in synagogues and they were amazed.

They questioned where did Jesus come from and where did he get his wisdom and powers from? They were amazed. And then they began to take offense,wondering why did Jesus have these gifts and wisdom he’s from the same place their from his mother is a regular woman his father a carpenter.

Jesus replied

Only in his hometown and his own house is a prophet without honor

The word says Jesus didn’t do many maricles because of the lack of faith.

There will be times that we work hard to build our purpose and we look for support from the ones who know us best because we hope for them to want the best for us.

Not the case these will be the people who have very little faith in what you speak.

For some it will be envy for others it will be because of who you once were.

In that time remember Jesus’s words “only in his home a prophet is without honor.”

We have to step out of those that we feel comfort in, because what your doing is going to lead to discomfort in their presence.

And we all know discomfort means it’s time to move to the next.

Jesus didn’t do many maricles because thet were so filled with envey and offense there wasn’t any room for faith and peace
Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer.

Matthew chapter 11

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are walking in faith, and knowing that God is shifting you in the places your suppose to be.

Even if it doesn’t look like what you expect it to, God sees further than your eyes.

To my followers thanks for joining in I appreciate you guys so much.

If you were scrolling and came across this blog. Thanks for stopping by, let me introduce myself.

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy

and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve is writing this blog and as the founder of Journey and praise ministry. I serve as a intercessor for the From Sinner to Saint prayer wall. If you would like to add your name you can email me at Fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com

Another way that I serve is as an encourager and baord member of Walk It Out Ministries. Okay lets get into the word

Matthew Chapter 11

Verse 1 – 6

The word of the Lord says that after Jesus finished commanding his disciples he went out to teach and preach in their cities.

The word says when John heard about this in the prison, he sent two of his disciples to see Jesus.

When Gods disciples came to Jesus they asked him if he was the one they were to find or should they keep looking.

The word says Jesus answered and said Go and tell John the things that you hear and see.

” the blind receive their sight the lame walk the leper clean and tge deaf hear the dead rise amd the poor preached to. And blessing to those that are not offended by me.”

If we all can walk through life saying blessings to all who are not offended by the God in me.

The Lord works in all the power that he commanded in the disciples in chapter 10. Jesus told us in that chapter that we can do what the teacher does but we can not be greater than the teacher.

So expect to have the power ti heal the sick, raise the dead, hearing to the deaf. What happens when you actually do tap into those commands with your faith.

Verse 7 – 19

In these verses it tells us that after Johns disciples left, the Lord began to speak about John.

Jesus begins to tell the people that people didnt go to the wilderness looking for a will dressed man, they went to the wilderness to see a prophet.

Jesus goes on to tell the people that since John the Baptist the kingdom has been advancing with force. And forceful people are taking hold of it.

Jesus goes to explain to the people that John is the one who fulfilled the prophesy the one that made the way.

The Lord goes on to say for those who are willing to accept John is the Elijah who was supposed to come.

V16

The Lord sayd people now are like children in the market looking for others to pay attention.

When John came and he did not eat or drink they said he had a demon, the son of man came eatting and drinking they said he was a gluttonous man. The Lord says wisdom is justified by her children. ( Those who act wisely prive wisdom is right)

Glory be to God these verses reminds me that no matter what God has placed others before us to make a way and he will keep on until he gets to his design.

People are so busy looking for a reaction from others for every move they makr or I should say we make. But expect that when you are busy looking for God people will find everything wrong.

John fasted and thw said he had a demon, Jesus ate and hung out with non righteous people and he was called gluttonous and a winebibber.

No matter what you do the people are only going to see what they want, let it be about the works that you do.

Verse 20-30

The Lord tells the people that had seen the miracles he preformed and still lived in sin that the towns and people that are no longer exist would still have it better than them because they would have at least mourned.

The Lord goes on to praise the father for giving sight of what he desires to the little children

Jesus reminds us that the father knows the son and the son chooses to make others known to the father

Jesus calls on all who are tired and carrying a heavy load. Leting them know that he will give them rest.

He called to the people to come and be hos servants and to learn from him. They eould find rest in him. In a service that is easy and light.

Amen! We learned in chapter 10 that a disciple shall pack light and not trouble themselves about what to preach on. In these verses the Lord says come to me it will be easy and light.

When we work for God we must remember that there isn’t a burden. The Lord has said he’s carrying that you just go and wait for instructions. If you get none keep doing what you have been doing.

I also serve as one of the leaders of the Walk it Out group on Facebook. Okay lets get into the word of the Lord!

I Samuel Chapter 25

David, Naval and Abigail

Verse 1-11

The word tells us that at this time Samuel had died and all Israel assembled and mourned for him; and they buried him at his home in Ramah.

David had moved down into the desert of Maon. There was a man in Main who was very wealthy and had property. The word says he had a thousand goats and three thousand sheep. The mans name was Naval and his wife’s name was abigail, the scripture says she was an intelligent and beautiful woman, but her husband was mean.

David was in the desert when he heard that Naval was shearing, David sent ten young men to Naval to say.

Long life to you! Good health to you and your household! And good health to all that is yours!

The men were to say on David’s behalf that he heart’s that it’s shearing time. 

When your shepherds were with us, we did not mistreat them, and the whole time they were at Carmel nothing of theirs were missing. Ask your own servants and they will tell you. Therefore be favorable toward my young men, since we come at a festive time. Please give your servants and your son David whatever you can find for them.”

The word says when David’s men arrived, they have Nabal David’s message, and Nabal by saying who is David and why should I take food from my servants and give it to him and his men.

Read how David’s message came to Nabal. Which such great wishes of greatness, and Nabal still remained mean spirited. This reminds us that some people, no matter what you do for them no matter how much you speak good grace in to their lives, they will not move from their ways.
Verse 12-22

David’s men returned back and when they told David what Nabal said David told his men to put on their swords and David put his on as well. The word says about five hundred went up with David, and two hundred stayed with the supplies.

One of Nabal’s servants told his wife Abigail that Nabal had hurled insults at David’s men, and that the men were very good to them.

“Night and day they were a wall around us all the time we were herding our sheep near them. Now think it over and see what you can do, because disaster is hanging over our master and his whole household.”

The word says Abigail wasted no time. She gathered up as much as she could fit on her donkey (see scripture for details of what she packed for David). The word says she told her servant to go ahead and she would follow him, but she didn’t tell her husband.

As she rode her donkey in to the mountain ravine she saw David and his men coming toward her David had just said that Nabal had paid his good back with evil, and may God deal with him if he leaves one man alive of all who belong to Nabal.

Praise God Abigail new who David was and who’s David was. The servant knew what David capabilities were. Remember the song that drove Saul into a Jealous rage Saul killed thousands, but David killed ten thousands.

David felt that Nabal’s evil was should not go unpunished and what he knew was true was that God confirms the word of his servant.

Lastly look at Abigail, it was nothing to pack up food and something to drunk for the men. But it was everything to move quickly to save her life and her servants life.

Verse 23- 31

The word says when Abigail saw David she quickly got off the donkey and bowed before him with her face to the ground. She told David to pay no attention to the wicked man Nabal, he is a fool like his name. She tells Saul since the Lord has kept you from shedding blood with your own hands. May the Lord let all your enemies and all whi intend to harm you be like Nabal.

Abigail gives honor to David for fighting the Lord’s battles she speaks good word over his life, and asks him to remember her when the Lord blesses him with success.

Praise God Abigail came to David humble and knowing God’s vision for him. Abigail served as an intervention, if David killed Nabal with his own hands because he was upset, he would have had to deal with that sitting on his spirit.

Verse 32- 44

David gave Abigail the Lord’s blessings for meeting him and saving him from bloodshed. He tells Abigail that not only did she save her life but she saved everyone who belong to Nabal.

David accepted what Abigail had to give him and told her to go home in peace. When Abigail got home Nabal was drunk and feasting like a king,  she waited u til the next day to tell him what she did.

The word says his heart failed him and he turned to stone. Ten days later the Lord struck Nabal and he died.

The word says when David heard about Nabal’s death he praised God for upholding his cause for the way Nabal had treated him.

Then David sent word asking Abigail to be his wife. The word says that Abigail quickly got on her donkey with five of her maids and went with David’s messengers.

The word let’s us know that David also married Ahinaom of Jezreel and so he had two wives. Saul had given his daughter Michal away to Paltiel  

Glory be to God, this chapter reminds us that when someone wrongs us there is no need to go for revenge. The Lord will uphold his servant. This is why we are not to look to the left and the right but straight ahead. The Lord will handle your left and right you will have to just trust in him for your forward.

Now for the important part if you are looking to build your foundation in faith turn your bible, Google or download the free bible app go to Romans 10:9 Confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation in faith with worship; word study, prayer and fellowship.

Be Blessed

I am blessed to be able to serve as founder of this blog From Sinner to Saint Blog and prayer wall as well as Journey in Praise Ministry  www.journeyinpraise.wordpress.com  where we walk out our journey in praise for the new lessons. I am blessed to also be able to serve as one of the leaders of the Walk it Out group on Facebook and Periscope. Okay lets get into the word of the Lord!

I Samuel chapter 24

Verse 1- 7

The word tells us that after Saul returned from fighting the Philistines, he was told, that David was hiding in the desert En Gedi. Saul took three thousand men chosen from all if Israel to look for David and his men.

They came to a sheep’s pen and there was a cave. The word says Saul went in to relieve himself. David and his men were far back in the cave. David’s men told him this is the day the Lord spoke 

“I will give your enemy into your hands for you to deal with as you wish”

The word says then David crept up and cut a corner of Saul’s robe. The word says David was conscience stricken. David tells his men that “the Lord forbid that I should do such a thing to my master, the Lord’s anionted, or lift my hand against him; for he is the anointed if the lord” the word says David rebuked his men and didn’t allow them to attack Saul.

The verses remind us that once anointed always anointed.  The enemy was using Saul through anger and Jealousy. Saul was thinking with a angry heart that was developed from Jealousy.

The Lord put Saul in David’s hands not what David did was going to determine who he was and where he stood in his walk in faith. 

Had David killed Saul he would have been acting out of flesh not spirit. The Lord didn’t tell Saul to kill David “He said do to him as you wish” and at the moment of choice The Lord quickly reminded David of Saul’s anionting.

Romans 12:17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody 

Verse 8 -13

The word says then David went out of the cave and called out to Saul. The word says when Saul turned around David was bowed down and prostrated himself. David asked Saul why was he listening to men that said he wanted to harm him? David tells Saul he could have killed him that day. David remind Saul that he had not wronged him but yet he is hunted. David say may the Lord judge between us. David remindsSaul of the saying. 

From evildoers come evil deeds

So his hand will not touch him.

It was important for David to remind Saul of why he was hunting David. It was important for Saul to see that his life was spared.

Verse 14 -22

Saul says to David you are more righteous then me, you have treated me well, but I have treated you badly. Saul recognized his faults and he and David made an oath that David would not leave out Saul’s decendants when he is king.

Praise God David would not had been able to fully walk out his purpose if he would have killed Saul. He had to walk in forgiveness. He knew he didn’t do anything to Saul but Saul’s actions could have brought further from God he could have been controlled by anger which would have been developed by unforgiveness. David turned it around he rejected the seed of anger from being planted in his spirit. Then reminded Saul of his anointing. Glory be to God 

Now for the important part if you are looking for salvation please Google, download the free bible app go to Romans 10:9 in your bibles and Confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved. Get yourself involved in building a foundation of faith by word study, worship, prayer, fellowship and allow yourself a relationship with Jesus Christ

Ezekiel Chapter 32 A Lament for Pharoah

Ezekiel says In the twelfth year, in the twelfth month on the first day the word of the Lord came to him. and told him to take up grieving for Pharoah King of Egypt and say to him.

That he is like a lion among nations, a sea monster and the Lord will cast his net and catch him, and feed him to the birds, and the beast. Allow his blood to flow through the valley.. The Lord says he will bring darkness in the land of Pharoah. The Lord says that he will trouble the hearts of many people, when he brings Pharaohs destruction among the nations.

for those who Pharoah doesn’t know they will be appalled by him, and the kings will be in horror because of him, when the Lords sword comes down each of them will tremble.The Lord will send the sword of the king of Babylon.

In this Chapter the Lord had favor over Nebuchadnezzar to carry out his word and confirm the prophesy of Ezekiel All the uncircumcised would fall those that didn’t praise God and who Idolized in the old testament.

If you are joining me in Journey In Praise Prophet Arise then this chapter shows you exactly what it means that the Lord will confirm his prophets word. He told Ezekiel to grieve for the Pharoah because he was about to lose everything including his life. The Lord surprises no one. whether we listen or not the warning is always on its way.

Ezekiel Chapter 25

Hey Everyone,

Thanks for joining in. My followers thank you appreciate you thank you for joining in to the fellowship. If you are new to this blog welcome, let me introduce myself.

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve God is this blog, here is our meeting place to fellowship the word of the Lord. Other than this bible study there is the Journey In Praise Ministry you can find on Facebook at@journeyinpraise and there you can find all three outlets of Journey In Praise( Podcast, Blog,Broadcast). Last but not least the prayer wall you can email me at fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com if you leave your name and request I would love to add you to the wall and pray with you. Okay let’s get in to the word.

Ezekiel Chapter 25 prophecy against Ammon

Ezekiel said that the word of the Lord came to him and told him to turn his face to Ammonites because they said that Aha when the sanctuary when it was disrespected, when the land of Israel was turned in to waste and when the people of Judah was exiled. The Lord says he is turning then over to the people of the East as a possession. They will set up camps,eat your fruit and drink your milk. I will turn Rabbah ( the chief city of the people of Ammonites) a pasture for camels and Ammon a resting place for sheep and then they will know the He is Lord.The Lord says because Ammonites laughed and celebrated with malice toward the land of Israel. The Lord says he will give them as plunder ( a place to steal from) to the nations. he says I will destroy you and you will know that I am the Lord.

A Prophecy Against Moab

The Lord tells Ezekiel that he will give Moab to the east along with the Ammonites because they laughed and said to look the house of Judah is like other nations.

Prophecy Against Edom

They Lord says because Edom took revenge on the house of Judah the Lord will release his wrath on Edom and they will know his vengeance.

Prophecy Against Philistia

Because Philistine acted out in vengeance and malice against Judah the Lord will act out and show his wrath toward the Philistines.

This chapter makes us realize one thing when someone is going through hard times don’t try to step on them don’t kick them when they are done. All who the Lord told Ezekiel to turn his back toward were those who wanted to laugh and attack Judah when they were dealing with their punishment. Be carful how you treat people, you never know what they could be going through.

Now for the Important part If you are looking for Salvation, you desire to have a personal relationship with the sovereign God. Google, download the free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans 10:9, and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord , and believe with your heart that he died for our sins, and God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. Study the word and allow the Lord to move mountain in your life.

Ezekiel Chapter 18

Happy Monday Everyone,

I pray that you all had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed a bit of time to yourself. It is important to the betterment of you that you take a moment to build yourself. make some time to just sit with God and wait for him to give you instruction.

For those who do not know my name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve the Lord is through this bible study blog. This is where I come to you guys with the word of the Lord so that we can spend sometime with God. Romans 1:17 tells us in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed,  a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written, the righteous will live by faith. This tells us through the word, God will reveal himself and build our faith. Glory to God. Next is the Journey In Praise ministry where you can find me on FaceBook (@journeyinpraise), periscope (@WilhelminaLundy) and YouTube @(journeyinpraise) Itunes (@journeyinpraise) and soundcloud (@journeyinpraise) at these outlets you can find me speaking the word of the Lord, and last but not least the prayer wall If you would like to be added to the prayer wall you can email me at fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com. Now let’s get in to the word.

Ezekiel chapter 18

The soul who sins will die

verse 1 -3 

Ezekiel says the word of the Lord came to him and said ” what do you people mean when you quote the proverb ‘The father’s eat sour grapes and the children’s teeth are set on edge’ ” the Lord says’ “surely as I live you will no longer quote this proverb in Israel. for every living soul belongs to me, the father as well as the son – both alike be long to me.The  soul who sins is the one who will die.

The Lord says in these voices know the son wont reap the father’s actions but you all belong to me everyone is responsible for his on salvation so weather our fathers walked upright or sinned has nothing to do with what we will have to face. you sin you die.

verse 5-9

The Lord says that a man who is walking upright and follows his decrees,who treat people with honesty and respect, and gives to the poor is a man who will surely live. Glory to God.

The Lord reminds us that we are here to do right and live unpunished walking in his way and listening to his voice knowing right from wrong and abiding by them treating our brethren fair and giving to those who have not.  

verse 10-13

Tells us that a man who sins and does detestable things will surely die his blood will be on his own head. he knew right from wrong.

verse 14 – 17

The 14th verse starts out saying suppose a son sees all the sins of his father, and even though he see’s them he doesn’t commit them he will not die for his father’s sins he will live for living upright.

Verse 18 -20

These’s verses say to us the righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him. A son who is seeing to it that he follows the laws and Decrees of God s=hould not have to pay for his fathers sins, his father will die for his own sin.

verse 21 – 24

The Lord says to Ezekiel If a wicked man changes his ways and stops sinning then he will live none of the sins that he committed will be remembered . If a righteous man turns away from his righteousness then he will not live and none of his righteous acts will be remembered. He is more pleased when the wicked changes his ways and lives then the Death of the wicked.

Verse 25- 32

The Lord address Israels opinion that he is unjust reminding them that he will save the life of a man who was wicked and decided to turn from all the wicked things he did and save his life. why shouldn’t the man who was righteous die after being righteous and then turning to wicked. He willingly decided that he didn’t want to follow the laws of God.

This chapter reminds us that if we do wrong we reap the consequences. all the Sovereign Lord wants us to do is be in a relationship with him. the more we study and stay in the word the closer we get to him the more we want to please him. Last Thursday I had an honor in joining in on pastor Kimberly Jones Prayer Protocol Boot camp. It was a phenomenal experience I came out of the experience understand how Important it is to be in Gods presence. Activating the ability to pray in the spirit. If you are interested you can find more info at Kimberly J.net 

Now to the Important stuff, If you are looking for salvation and ready to begin that relationship with God. Google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved. get yourself in a relationship with God and allow him to turn it around for you. Building confidence ,faith and strength. He will do it for you. Praise God

Ezekiel Chapter 14 Idolaters condemned

verse 1-6

Ezekiel says that some of the elders of Israel came to him and sat down in front of him. Then the word of the Lord came to him and says “Son of man, these men have set up Idols in their hearts and put wicked stumbling blocks before their faces. Should I let them inquire of me at all? Therefore speak to them and tell them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: when any Israelite sets up idols in his heart, and puts a wicked stumbling block before his face and then goes to a prophet, I the Lord will answer him myself in keeping with his  great idolatry. I will do this to recapture the hearts of the people of Israel, who have all deserted me for their idols.Therefor say to the house of Israel, This is what the sovereign Lord says: repent! Turn from your idols and renounce all your detestable practices!

For those that go to Gods Prophet or servant after worshipping Idols and putting up stumbling blocks ( circumstances that may keep you from God) the Lord says he will answer them himself  so that he may recapture the hearts of those who turn from him. for his name sake. The Lord will forgive us and change our hearts help us fight those things that keep us from him if we repent of our sins. we serve a God who is faithful to us but most of all we serve a forgiving God who will not take back his words.

verse 7 – 11

The Lord says that when an Israelite or alien living in Israel separates himself from him and sets up Idols in his heart and puts circumstances between themselves and God and then goes to a prophet to inquire of him. The Lord says: I the Lord will answer him myself I will set my face against that man and make an example and a byword . I will cut him off from my people. Then you will know that I am Lord. And If the prophet is enticed to utter a prophecy, I the Lord have  enticed that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand against him and destroy him from among my people Israel. They will bear their guilt – the prophet will be as guilty as the one who consults him. Then the people of Israel will no longer stray from me, nor will  they defile themselves anymore with their sins. they will be my people, and I will be their God, declares the sovereign Lord.

When we are not walking right and we are self proclaiming ourselves as prophets that act won’t go unnoticed by God. The Lord will call you out you will prophecy your imagination and not what the Sovereign Lord has said and he will stretch his hand out against you. The Lord will stop you from putting  a stumbling block between him and his people Glory to god. Thank you Lord, Glorryyyy. I thank my Lord God for Loving us so much that he will stop anyone who thinks that the can block us from him. won’t he do it!

verse 12-20

Judgment Inescapable

The word of the Lord came to Ezekiel: He said son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut of its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its men and their animals, even if these three men Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord.

Or if I send wild beasts through that country and they leave it childless and it becomes desolate so that no one could pass through it because of the beasts, as surely as I live , declares the sovereign Lord, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved, but the land would be desolate.

Or if I bring a sword against that country and say, Let the sword pass throughout the land, and I kill its men and their animals, as surely as I live, declares the sovereign Lord, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved.

Or if I send a plague into that land and pour out my wrath upon it through bloodshed, killing its men and their animals. as surely as I live, declares the sovereign Lord, even if Noah, Daniel and Job were in it, they could save neither son nor daughter. they would save only themselves by their righteousness.

These verses are powerful. only you are responsible for your salvation. your walk only can save you, your relationship with God can save you only. just as we are born in our individual bodies one soul one body one salvation, one relationship. I encourage you to get in to the word, begin the relationship walk in your purpose with confidence that God will walk with you Hallelujah!!!!!

verse 21 – 23

Ezekiel says that this is what the Lord said to him: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my four dreadful judgements – sword and famine and wild beast and plague – to kill its men and their animals! Yet there will be some survivors – sons and daughters who will be brought out of it. They will come to you and when you see their conduct and their actions, you will be consoled regarding the disaster I have brought upon Jerusalem – every disaster I have brought upon it. you will be consoled when you see their conduct and their actions, for you will know that I have done nothing in it without cause, declares the Sovereign Lord.

sometimes In our compassion we ask God why? why he does certain things ?  some say well if there is a God why does he allow certain things to happen? why is it that this group of people are going hungry? why are we at war? why are babies dying? here’s your answer Ezekiel 14:21 – 23 reminds us to look pass the horrible actions and look deeper in to the conduct and actions. The famine (Hunger), the plague (HIV, Cancer), the beast (Drugs, politicians) sword ( murders) before typing this I said Lord I don’t want people to get this misunderstood. so here’s how he gives it to me. just in the bible these things go on for generations and though our flesh does not understand its your spirit that seeks God that will give you understanding. we have plagues in a word where we have false prophets giving us a good word to gain a profit. we have Idolizing people are separating themselves from God, people are putting there wants in front of the Sovereign. I know what you’re saying what about those that suffer and know God. at the end of their suffering where are they going. If they know God they bare their cross and then go to the  kingdom. and some will survive and praise his name. Glory to God we have people who have survived cancer we have people going 20yrs HIV positive you have people walking around with a bullet in their head, we have people sober after 15yrs on drugs we have people being pulled out of Jail because the were wrongly accused Hallelujah! his word never changes.

Now for the Important part, If you are looking to begin your relationship with the sovereign it starts with your salvation. google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 confess with your mouth, that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you shall be saved. Get on your knees and talk to God allow him to fill your cracks with putty and wash you clean. Hallelujah! have an amazing day God bless you
